. but it's got to happen sooner than later. >> and mik, in afghanistan, what was the meeting -- what did you learn about the meeting between secretary panetta and president karzai? >> reporter: i think what came out of that was the fact that it was cordial. you know, the meetings that president karzai has had with other u.s. officials recently hasn't really been all that friendly. you know, president karzai has given long-winded speeches about civilian casualties and the like, with the u.s., including the former defense secretary, robert gates, sitting right next to him. but what came out of that meeting was a sense of cardialty that had been missing to some extent in that u.s./afghan relationship. panetta says he believes that things are on course for a successful conclusion to the u.s. military operations there in afghanistan, still set to end at the end of 2014. and by the way, you know, the u.s. has also decided to withhold $800 million in military aid to pakistan right next door, because there's been some tension, obviously, since the killing of bin laden. but what happened is that
